Retief Goosen takes advantage at weather-hit St Jude Classic
Only 32 players managed to finish their round on Friday before thunderstorms ended play for the day early.
The rest of the field were forced to return on Saturday morning to pick up where they had left off, and it was South African Goosen who made the most of the enforced break.
He carded a four-under 66 to move into a share of second on eight under overall, alongside Colombian Camilo Villegas (64).
Both men were still four shots adrift of leader Ben Crane, who was among the 32 to complete their rounds on schedule as he headed the leaderboard by four shots.
Phil Mickelson also looked strong as he continues his preparations towards next week’s US Open, shooting a 68 to trail Crane by seven shots, although the left-hander insisted he could have gone even lower.
“It was a good solid round but it wasn’t what I was hoping for,” Mickelson said.
“Course conditions were pretty easy today and gave us a lot of birdie opportunities, but I wasn’t able to hit my iron shots close enough to take advantage.”
